Have you ever read a book and come across a word and said to yourself, “Hmmm, self, I wonder what that word means?”, and then gone to a dictionary to look up the definition of the word? And thus become slightly wiser in the ways of language? The Oxford English Fictionary is not the book to help.
The OEF exists to define words that do not exist. If you have a word that needs a definition, submit it. If you have a word that already has a definition, that’s very nice, but go contact Merriam Webster instead.
Consult the OEF to find out about wunderstorms, snobstacles and juxtapoliticians or submit a word of your own for definition – as long as it doesn’t already exist! Go to site →
